Robert Mueller is out to get President Trump.
The special counsel doesn’t just want to impeach the President, Mueller wants to see Trump dragged out in handcuffs.
And Mueller just got the unexpected boost to his crusade that will leave Donald Trump red with rage.
Special counsel Robert Mueller is out to jail President Trump.
That’s why he passed off Michael Cohen’s campaign finance case to prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.
And there are reports that anti-Trump prosecutors in that office are preparing an indictment against the President to file against him if he loses re-election in 2020.
But if Trump wins, he will remain in office and the statute of limitations of five years will expire.
That’s why Congressman Eric Swalwell – one of the leading conspiracy theorists about Russian collusion – went on MSNBC and announced Congress was working on legislation to extend the statute of limitations for crimes committed by Presidents so prosecutors can still try and jail Trump in 2025 if he wins re-election.
Rep. Eric Swalwell said Tuesday that lawmakers are working on legislation to extend the statute of limitations for crimes committed by presidents, allowing them to be charged once their terms end.
With special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation expected to wrap up in the coming weeks, the California Democrat said members of Congress are preparing for the possibility of evidence that Donald Trump’s presidential campaign colluded with Russia.
“I don’t think any person should be above the law,” Swalwell said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “What concerns me is that right now the president may escape criminal liability because he could win a reelection and the statute of limitations could run” out.
Swalwell said he doesn’t believe a sitting president should be immune from indictment, as a Justice Department protocol dating to Watergate says the commander in chief is. But freezing the statute of limitations during a president’s term — as House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said he was considering last year — could allow for prosecution once a president leaves office.
When Trump said Hillary Clinton should be in jail during the 2016 campaign, fake news reporters shrieked that Trump was an authoritarian destroying norms by threatening to jail his political opponents.
These same reporters stood by silently as Eric Swalwell bragged on TV about attempts to change the law specifically to jail Donald Trump.
With Trump in office, there is no chance this legislation goes anywhere.
But if and when the Democrats control all three branches of government, Americans can expect them to pass laws making it easier to jail conservatives.
